Geotechnical Evaluation

    • Saxum conducts specialised Geotechnical Evaluation and field testing of geological rock drill core and conducts the following routine field tests: 
    • Geotechnical logging of drill core (Orientated and Non-orientated)
    • Joint and structure mapping
    • Rock Mass Ratings
    • RQD
    • Impact Splitting
    • Point Load Testing


  • Saxum conducts geotechnical mapping and profiling to estimate the stress orientation and structural distribution of the rock mass structural discontinuities (faults, folds/rolls, dykes and joints) that are likely to influence the stability of pit slopes.
